The JAI has organized and implemented the second youth training session in Ramallah, within its Democratic Citizenship program. The 3-day training, 18-20 July 2013, was for a group of 16 university students from the north and central West Bank areas, members of the JAI' Palestinian Youth Ecumenical Movement.
It tackled the topics of citizenship, identity, the importance of involving Palestinian youth in their society and the investment of their energies to be more influenced with what is happening on the Palestinian level, as well as influencing decision-makers. The training also included sessions on democracy, types of democracy, the Palestinian declaration of Independence, and advocacy skills in the management of youth initiatives.
The training aimed at increasing the capacity of young people to work in advocacy campaigns in order to influence the decision-makers at all levels.
